We Made It To Texas Last Night...Got Up Early And Have Already Started Filling The Car. Scores So Far. Status: Flea Mkt. Heaven!
Sunset is my favorite part of the day. Actually, the last hour of sunlight is what I love. Photographers call it the "Golden Hour" and it's when you get that amazing light that travels through so much of the Earth's atmosphere that it heightens all the colors. So of course I had to take a photo while driving. Don't do this...ever. But do click through and check out a couple of my Thursday First Monday Flea Market Scores!
It was...and wasn't...difficult to pop right away on a Hundred Bucks worth of Herman Miller / Eames
shell chairs. I hated to blow that much cash on the first of three days but...well...you know my motto,
Strike While The Iron Is Hot! Turns out, after grabbing these up, two other shopper asked if I had
picked these up from the vendor that I had. They had both hemmed and hawed too long and missed

snatched them up. I woulda' hated seeing them on someone else' cart if I had missed out. They certainly
aren't perfect, but these so infrequently are. I'm loving the lighter blue pair. Might keep 'em. Dunno for
I don't usually tell y'all what I paid for this or that but SO many people have been either coming down
on Canton First Monday Flea or have looked at me like I was crazy for coming here JUST for the
event that I wanted to show that Really Good Stuff can be had here for a decent price! This lovely
and Rare (I've never seen one before today, actually!) Russel Wright pitcher was a mere $10. It's in
perfect condition and is in a very desirable color, too! These four bits aren't even all I picked up today...
AND this is just Thursday, many of the vendors don't set up until tomorrow! On top of all this, we
are having a blast. We arrived into the area late last night around midnight to find ourselves with an
empty gas tank and no rural gas stations open. A very helpful Sheriff informed us of the fact that many
of the closed gas stations leave their "pay at the pump" pumps ON over night. "Whew!"
